According to reports shared on Sunday by Reuters, U.S. COVID-19 death tolls have reached up to 800,000. The American nation has braced the potential surge in infectious diseases because of the time spent indoors in the colder weather which raised the degree of the transmissible variant Omicron.
The total statistics show that the death toll due to Omicron variant only has exceeded the population of North Dakota.
Although the virus prevention vaccine is freely and widely available across the country, this virus has taken more lives as compared to the lives taken by the deadly Delta variant in 2020. Still, people are refusing to take the vaccine against COVID-19.
At the beginning of the year, above 450,000 American people died after getting affected by the COVID-19 which was 57% of the total deaths in the U.S. since COVID knocked on U.S. doors.
According to experts, the deaths that are reported this year were all mostly unvaccinated patients. This is surprising to know that despite providing advanced health services and experts’ care to affected patients, the death toll remains out of control.
According to the Reuters analysis, it took only 111 days for the United States death rate to accelerate from 60,000 to 700,000. The next 100,000, and even more depressing figures of death took only 73 days to count.
The analysis also stated that developed countries have lost much fewer lives per capita in the last eleven months.
Between the wealthiest nations group (G7), the United States significantly ranks the worst when it comes to death per capita from COVID-19, since the beginning of the year.
The death rate has risen to more than three times from neighboring countries Canada and 11 times from Japan.
The United States, being the most civilized nation and the largest pool of vaccine-providing countries, ranks near the bottom for utilizing vaccines in its own territories.
The United States has the 30th rank among the 38 OECD – (Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development). The countries that have had more death rates since January include Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Latvia, Colombia, Slovenia, and Poland.
